An engineering team from CRP Medios y Entretenimiento, a privately-held commercial radio station group based in Lima, Peru, visited our Raymond, Maine factory in mid-March to inspect their new RF antenna system, including a DCBR 20-panel FM antenna, dual-manifold combiner, and filters. During their visit, they also observed a successful factory acceptance test of the new equipment.
The kit has shipped to their tower site at el Morro Solar, in Lima’s Chorrillos district, in anticipation of a June installation. As one of the most crowded broadcast antenna farms in the world, el Morro Solar is jam-packed with towers, antennas, and transmitter buildings. A coastal perch overlooking the sea, this site is also subject to high winds and salty, humid air that can corrode the equipment over time.
In making their buying decision, CRP management considered our products’ innovative design, reliability, and price/performance, and that many Dielectric antennas have been operating reliably in coastal regions like Florida and the Caribbean for many years. CRP’s Operations Manager Giancarlo Garzon, engineering team, and RF consultant Luis Bordo were also impressed by a detailed technical presentation given to them by our VP of Sales Jay Martin in Lima.
According to our International Sales Manager Federico d’Avis, “Our antenna system offered CRP the best option for improving their stations’ signal strength, reception, and coverage across the Greater Lima area. Besides meeting CRP’s expectations about the target coverage pattern, the dual-manifold combiner makes it possible for their eight separate high-power FM channels to share the same antenna.”
And, Jay Martin comments, “We’re delighted that CRP has placed their trust and confidence in our efficient, economical antenna and combiner system. We look forward to building a long, rewarding relationship with CRP, and standing behind our technology so that it serves them for years to come.”
